Pinnacle Entertainment leaders say plans for a third Baton Rouge casino are moving forward. They told the Louisiana Gaming Commission construction could start by May 20.
The project is scheduled to be complete by late 2011.
Pinnacle management says financial market conditions have improved. Engineering plans for the riverside site should be filed with the Army Corps of Engineers later this week.
Voters in East Baton Rouge Parish approved the project in 2008.
